    Any BT engineers out there, I have a BT cable and need to connect it to a standard BT slave socket. I know there are four cables which need connecting into six different ports. Anybody know what colour goes where, so that I can use the phone and XBOX live ?

    :confused: :confused: :confused:

    The wiring for standard colours is as follows (which not all cable manufacturers follow)

    Conn No. Usual Cable Colour - Function

    1 N/A No connection
    2 Blue with White Bands Speech and Ringing
    3 Orange with White Bands Ringing
    4 White with Orange Bands dont think it is used
    5 White with Blue Bands Speech and Ringing
    6 N/A No connection.

    But dont forget you need an adsl filter (aswell as a filter for everything else connected to the phone line) and they usually have a connecion for the phone and the adsl modem.

    Hi taffyboyo,
    Well I don't mean to be a bit condesending, but do you know how the xbox and adsl broadband connection works? If you don't then please dont't take this the wrong way, and I apologise if I am teaching you how to suck eggs.

    1st off you need a broadband connection and broadband ISP. The xbox does not contain it's own modem so you need a modem that will take an ethernet connection from your xbox.
    You will need a filter on every device connected to the phone, even if it isnt being used at the time you are playing the xbox.
    You don't need a phone connected. But you must have your broadband modem connected via a filter.

    I have missed a few bits out, just for a quick reply. If you need anymore help, just reply.

    Are you telling me that the sweet Mr Gates failed to include a modem in his £250 machine, what a ****er :suicide:
    I have a BT Openworld 1.1mbs broadband connection and use it with my pc, to use the Xbox with this connection your telling me I need to buy a modem :confused:

    The modem I have is USB, it goes straight into the computer and then back out into the BT socket, If I buy a long RJ11 cable from my XBOX to my computer, how could I connect it :confused:
